Telltale's Batman finally has a trailer and release date for Episode One: Realm of Shadows, and we couldn't be more excited. I got to check out the first 30 minutes of the game back at E3 this year and have been itching to get my hands on the full game since then.

Here are 15 screenshots and stills from the first trailer to tide us over until the August 2nd release.

1. Let's start with the new Batman himself

2. Batman holding a taser gun, looking cool

3. What's a Batman game without some power punches?

4. ... Or crashing through a window on some baddies (with an ominous Harvey Dent poster in the background)

5. Our first look at Telltale's Batmobile

6. Our first look at the new Batcave

7. Bruce in front of his impressive Batman command center

8. Bruce Wayne, in a different kind of suit

9. A very muscular Harvey Dent holding a campaign fundraiser at the Wayne Manor

10. Reporter Vicki Vale on the scene

11. Vicki Vale, Harvey Dent, and Bruce Wayne all being pleasant together

12. Catwoman doin' Catwoman things on a rooftop

13. Carmine Falcone and his goons are set to play a prominent role

14. Our first look at Commissioner Gordon

15. A nice view of the Gotham skyline

That's all we've got so far from this first trailer drop - but expect more to come soon! August 2nd is creeping up on us mighty quick.

Which characters are you most excited about in Telltale's Batman game?
